Richard Stout
Birth: 1836
Death: Aug. 6, 1896

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was a prisoner of war. He served as a Landsman in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Serving on board the USS Isaac Smith, Stono River, 30 January 1863. While reconnoitering on the Stono River on this date, the USS Isaac Smith became trapped in a rebel ambush. Fired on from two sides, she fought her guns until disabled. Suffering heavy casualties and at the mercy of the enemy who was delivering a raking fire from every side, she struck her colors out of regard for the wounded aboard, and all aborard were taken prisoners. Carrying out his duties bravely through this action, Stout was severely wounded and lost his right arm while returning the rebel fire." (bio by: Don Morfe)
